Three teenage boys in hospital after shooting in north London

Three teenage boys are in hospital, including one in a critical condition, after they were shot in north London.

Police are appealing for information after officers found them with gunshot wounds in Haringey, shortly after midnight.

A 19-year-old is in a critical condition, while a 15-year-old boy has possible life-changing injuries, police said.

Another boy, also 15, has injuries that are not thought to be life-changing or threatening.

Officers believe the suspected gunman arrived in a car, carried out the shootings, then drove off.

No arrests have been made yet.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward and have called for witnesses who may have seen a car being driven “erratically” from the scene.

“Young men have been shot, one is critically injured and another has injuries that may mean his life has changed forever,” said Detective Inspector Gemma Alger of the Metropolitan Police.

“We want to stop these acts of violence and we can only do this by people telling us what they know.”

She added: “Even if you don’t think you saw anything suspicious, if you were around and have any dashcam footage we want to hear from you.”
